This beach is perfect. The sand is nice, soft, and never gets hot. The water is so clear. Perfect for families.

Aruba is a beautiful island. Unfortunately Palm Beach has become over crowded and disappointing. Marriot’s Surf Club and it guests have devoured every inch of Beach and space. It’s sad! We been visiting for 15 years and each year it’s more of a @$%T show. That includes the chaos, crowds and demographics. If you have patience and a sense of humor, which we do, then come on down for the show!

Beautiful beach we love for two decades. Always guests of the Hyatt and reserve our Hut for the entire stay. One happy island return to each year. ❤️

Beach has been ruinned by greedy watersports businesses lining the water with ugly umbrellas. The view and access to the beach that you pay for has been taken away

This being our third time in Aruba, and having done ATV’s and Jeep rentals in the past, we took a quick ride to Palm Beach from our ship the day we were in port and spent a really enjoyable time on the beach. The beach and swim area is completely devoid of shells and other impediments so wearing water shoes isn’t necessary and the beach is very clean. There are the typical guys hawking their beach chairs (10 USD a piece) and extremely overpriced umbrella’s (some wanted 40 USD...we passed) along with other overpriced “amenities”. You’ll pay for restroom facilities unless staying at one of the high rises so do your business before heading out here.

There is a pier nearby with a restaurant and bar. I headed there for drinks but unless you are super aggressive in flagging down the bartender it may take a while to get something.

Overall, if you avoid the typical tourist traps and focus on the beach and experience (like we did) you will love this area for its beauty.
